    A little off topic, but where is everyone getting the HTC Sense skin for beautiful widgets from?

    It's called "Fancy Widget" in the market.

    This tranparency fix apparently also applies to whichever theme background png you have installed....
    I patched the services.jar with X's tool and pushed it back to my Droid which has the Black Ice theme on there and it made that background png transparent, which I know isn't due to that image's opacity...

    Looks good. Will that get rid of an image if it were on the statusbar_background?

    this looks good, but how is it different from putting a transparent image in for the status background??

    Also, what is the "clear" button background called in framework-res??

    Thanks!!!

    hey stratt, i'm not completely sure to be honest, i BELIEVE it just adjusts the opacity in the framework-res so i would assume any image layered onto that background would not be affected...

    Froyo had a different code written into XML that controlled the framework-res... so putting a transparent image into the framework didn't matter. the patch fixes this.

    what do you mean by button background?

    the notification background is "status_bar_background.png

    "Clear" button background

    Hi Mike,

    He's referring to the name of the file for the background of the "Clear" button used to clear notifications. I have the same question, I've been wanting to change it from white but don't know what file to change.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    i believe it is either the status bar item background OR status bar item app background.png... i believe these control both the item background AND the "clear" button, but i'm not positive. unfortuatenly it'd have to be trial and error unless someone can give a more difinitive answer...

    Question. I'm working on a theme and I'm having 2 problems.

    1- how did you change the text color for application title and description in the notification
    2 - transparent status icons like the battery gauge, how do you do this.whenever I save in ps it sets the transparency to white or black

    Lmk, thanks!
